Video Poker Tutor (VPT) is both a fun-to-play video poker game and a training tool that can help you learn the best cards to hold in the various situations that arise. You can play either Jacks or Better or Deuces Wild video poker.
Touch Deal to start a new hand. Then touch the cards you want to keep. As you do, the word HOLD will appear under your choices. When you're satisfied with your selections, touch Draw to draw new cards. You begin the game with 1000 credits and win when your hand matches one of the categories in the payoff table. You can use the Bet One and Bet Max buttons to control the amount of your bet. The maximum bet is 5 credits.
By default, VPT will display a blue dot above the cards it suggests you hold as soon as the hand is dealt. Using the Hints menu, you can change this so that the blue dots are displayed only when you touch Draw and the app disagrees with your play. You can also turn off the hint feature completely. VPT's suggestions are (nearly) optimal in the sense that they will produce the best results over a long series of plays. It is certainly possible that another play could do better on any individual deal because of the luck of the draw.
If your device supports landscape mode, VPT will display larger cards and buttons and eliminate the payoff table when in that mode.
Adjusting the Sound Volume
You can use your volume control to adjust the sound level. VPT respects the Media Volume setting on your device.
Hints: use this to control how VPT displays hints. Simply touch your choice.
Every time a hand is dealt: blue dots will indicate VPT's suggestions as each hand is dealt. Note: in this mode, VPT will automatically 'touch' the cards it would hold so that you can just touch Draw to make the suggested play. You are free to make a different play if you like.
Only when different from my play: when you touch Draw, VPT will check whether its play matches yours. If it does, play continues normally. If not, VPT will display blue dots to indicate its suggestions. You can then alter your play if you like. Click Draw again to continue.
Never: VPT will not show suggestions.
Enter Hand: allows you to enter a five-card hand in order to see VPT's suggested play. Use the rank and suit buttons to select the desired cards. When you touch OK, the hand will be shown in the machine and VPT's suggestions will be indicated by blue dots.
Select Machine: use this to choose between Jacks or Better or Deuces Wild.
Set Credits: use this to reset the number of credits.
Help: displays this page.
Exit: closes the app.
